Some time ago I purchased a chrome-cast. I tried in vain to get the bloody thing working in my Sony amp. I plugged it into one of the HDMI input slots and can get video but no audio.. so I slung it back in the box with the realisation that my technical mojo had finally expired.. The amp is a few years old so I am working gone the assumption that it doesn't support HDMI audio.. its a sony strk880 I think.
So.. I have plugged the bloody thing into a spare hdmi in the tv and I have accepted that I wont get audio through the amp. (Unless someone can explain what I'm doing wrong). I have then tried to stream from my pc in another room to the chrome-cast in my tv.. The only app which was recommended to me was real player cloud.. but I tried streaming a HD MKV last night and it say that I need to purchase the Pro version..
Is there a way to get the HDMI working in the amp.. and is there a better free or purchase app that's better than real player or should I just pay the $49 for real player pro?
short story long.. clearly..
